In the interior design industry, when it comes to wardrobes, cabinets, doors, kitchen shutters, and other pieces of furniture, High Pressure Laminates or HPLs are considered to be the most efficient, durable & cost effective materials giving endless design choices to customers in terms of textures, colours, and finishes. High Pressure Laminate for furniture gives property owners, architects, and designers complete flexibility to achieve their design inspirations.
What are High Pressure Laminates?
HPL decorative laminates are high quality man-made veneers, consisting of layers of specially selected paper impregnated with thermostat synthetic resins fused together under extreme pressure and heat. The surface layers, which incorporate solid colours, patterns or natural decors, use melamine-based resins to provide high-resistance to wear,impact, heat and staining. The core layers use phenolic-based resins for strength and flexibility. Further strength is added to the laminate by attaching it to what is called a substrate like particle board or MDF which helps create furniture which is extremely durable. HPLs are commonly used to create furniture pieces with flat surfaces like wardrobes, tabletops, doors, and cabinets.
